The Naturopaths at North East Natural Health Centre combine specialised naturopathic screening tools in various combinations to ensure we have a full understanding of your case.
Zinc Tally Testing was developed as a "taste test" for zinc deficiency. By swirling the Zinc Tally around in your mouth your naturopath can gauge by your taste response to the Tally how high or how low your zinc levels are. Low zinc status is often a catalyst for other nutrient deficiencies. These can be identified as your naturopath screens you for deficiency signs and reviews your dietary intake.
Iridology is a useful tool to assess the inherited strengths and weakness of your body as passed onto you from your parents and grandparents. Most signs are mapped on at 4 months of age and are fixed for life, whilst other signs may change based on your current energy levels, blood flow or stress. Iridology pinpoints tendencies towards conditions and highlights areas of health that you need to be more diligent with, especially as you age.
Urinalysis is an important tool in disease detection. Abnormalities can be indicative of diseases of the urinary system as well as other organ systems, including liver function, acid-base status, and carbohydrate metabolism. The Urinalysis used at this clinic is capable of detecting: bilirubin, blood, glucose, ketones, urine pH, protein specific gravity, urobilinogen, leukocytes and nitrite analyses and a urinary indicans to test for gut toxicity and parasites.
Hair Mineral Analysis Hair mineral analysis is one of the best ways to determine if heavy metal toxicity is effecting your health and wellbeing. With a sample of your hair we can measures the levels and comparative ratios of nutrients and toxic minerals. Our naturopaths will then design a treatment plan to improve your results. Hair mineral analysis produces reliable data on more than 35 nutrient and toxic minerals, and mineral ratios.
Tongue and Nail Analysis Observations of the tongue and nails reflect a lot about your internal health and organs. Our naturopath's are trained in tongue and nail analysis and may use this to determine the progress of your treatments. The tongue accurately shows the state of the internal digestive organs. The nails show nutritional deficiencies and blood flow.
Blood pressure Our naturopath's are trained to take & monitor your blood pressure. Once your blood pressure has been taken, we then work with you to design a treatment plant to improve your blood pressure and monitor it at future consultations.
